George Fant and Morgan Moses’ statistical splits in pass protection are similar

A few days ago, I analyzed Mekhi Becton‘s pass-protection statistics in his 2020 rookie season to figure out which types of opposing edge rushers he thrived and struggled against.

It only makes sense that we run the same study for the New York Jets‘ two competitors for the starting right tackle job: George Fant and Morgan Moses.

I collected data from the opponent’s primary left-side edge defender (the player that would most frequently face the right tackle) in each of the games that Fant and Moses started at right tackle last season.

Four categories were analyzed for each opponent: height, weight, arm length, and stance preference (ratio of snaps in which they lined up with their hand in the dirt versus standing up).

For both Fant and Moses, one category clearly stood out as the most correlative with their success in pass protection.
